    Pictures taken in 16:9 are too dark

    Hey people,

    Ever since I updated from windows 8 to 8.1 the pictures I take using my webcam are very dark if the proportion is set to 16:9. 4:3 pictures and videos shot in 16:9 are fine though.

    I'm uploading two pictures with different aspect ratios to demonstrate the problem.

    Any idea about what could be causing this and how to solve it?

Dark Arkana ap
This free Windows 8 ap gives you a great mystery game, although I did have to use the hints. It is free, but after the third level (about two hours of play) it told me that the game hasn't been completed yet. Excellent game, played well, and you can't argue about the price.
